One Cent More And You Can Add Cheese To A Burger!

, , , , , , , | Working | December 30, 2020

I have just worked through a long shift, all day in a hot store while wearing a face mask. I’m hungry, we’re ten minutes from closing, and my brain more or less slips into zombie mode.

I ring up a bracelet for a customer.

Me: “That’s $3.19.”

Customer: “That’s not right. It should have been $2.90.”

Me: “Mm-hm.”

I’m out of it and don’t actually process what she’s saying. The customer pays for it but looks annoyed.

Customer: “It’s the wrong price, though! It was $2.90!”

Me: *Still out of it* “Mm-hm, have a good day ma’am.”

She left sourly. I would feel bad about this, but her item was already on clearance and an override would’ve only saved her a whopping thirty-nine cents.
